|Soothing Images 31-47 - Bing Satellites|
The third in the series of live, improvised ambient albums. Another 17 quiet ambient songs - mainly piano and baritone guitar - with 17 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create new...

An album of quiet piano-based ambient music from Bing Satellites. www.bingsatellites.com Also available on CD from bingsatellites.bandcamp.com Live music is a wonderful thing!

|Twilight Sessions volume 12 - Bing Satellites|
The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to...

|Landscape and Drift - Bing Satellites|
Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all of...

|litmus0001 - Fear In A Gaze Towards An Unknown Horizon - BFW recordings|
The first release on BFW recordings from litmus0001 is a beautiful, lush soundscape of looping guitars and synths. Rooted in the beginnings of ambient, it draws comparison to Fripp and Eno's collaborations. But this is the work of one man, Jonathan Ewald. The music is recorded in one live take and completely improvised. Improvised and recorded in a single take on April 24th, 2010 at Worthless Research Laboratories in Madison, WI...
